Wonder how many members have received an email from GR to try the new online Beta search facility - soon to be launched.

I don't know how long it has been going on - only got my email today.

The lovely user friendly interface is completely different but the records the searches link to are the same ones used on the normal site.

I tried today - both open at the same time but I coudn't actually read the docs.
Suspect it may have something to do with the Search on the normal site throwing up some wobbles and not working properly.

Would be interesting to know what other think of it.
